Insys Therapeutics Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End 2016 Results

PHOENIX, April 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:INSY) ("Insys" or "the Company") today announced financial results for the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2016.

Highlights of and subsequent to the fourth quarter of 2016 include:

  • Total net revenue decreased to $54.9 million, compared to $93.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2015;
     
  • Net loss was $3.7 million, or $(0.05) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $18.1 million, or $0.25 per basic and $0.24 diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015;
     
  • Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $236.7 million as of December 31, 2016;
     
  • Announced that the Company is providing for the use of Cannabidiol Oral Solution at doses up to 40 mg/kg/day in compassionate use studies in subjects with refractory pediatric epilepsy following completion of 48 weeks of treatment in the ongoing long-term safety study;
     
  • Targeting an NDA filing by end-2017 for Buprenorphine Sublingual Spray for the treatment of moderate to severe acute pain;
     
  • The DEA issued an interim final rule that would result in Syndros™ (dronabinol oral solution) being placed in Schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act; 
     
  • Saeed Motahari will become President and Chief Executive Officer and be appointed to the Board of Directors, effective April 17, 2017; and
     
  • For the first quarter of 2017, the Company experienced an approximate 32% decline in Subsys scripts as compared the fourth quarter of 2016. As a result, Insys anticipates a commensurate impact on net revenue for the first quarter of 2017.

"During 2016 we continued to make progress in our product pipeline across both our sublingual and cannabidiol platforms, and expect to advance our pipeline candidates in 2017.  With recent clarity on the scheduling of Syndros, we are targeting a launch in the second half of 2017 and believe the differentiating attributes of this product will provide an important new treatment option for prescribers and patients," said Dr. Santosh Vetticaden, Interim Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Medical Officer of Insys.

About Insys

Insys Therapeutics is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes innovative drugs and novel drug delivery systems of therapeutic molecules that improve the quality of life of patients. Using proprietary sublingual spray technology and capabilities to develop pharmaceutical cannabinoids, Insys is developing a pipeline of products intending to address unmet medical needs and the clinical shortcomings of existing commercial products. Insys currently markets one product, SUBSYS® (fentanyl sublingual spray) but has received approval for the marketing of SYNDROS™ (dronabinol oral solution), a proprietary, orally administered liquid formulation of dronabinol that Insys believes has distinct advantages over the current formulation of dronabinol in soft gel capsule.  Insys is committed to developing medications for potentially treating addiction to opioids, opioid overdose, epilepsy, and other disease areas with high unmet need.

SUBSYS® and SYNDROS™ are trademarks of Insys Development Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Insys Therapeutics, Inc.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements including regarding our (i) plans to target an NDA filing by end-2017 for Buprenorphine Sublingual Spray for the treatment of moderate to severe acute pain, (ii) our expectations to advance our pipeline candidates in 2017, (iii) our expectations regarding Q1 script decline and expected commensurate impact on Q1 revenue, (iv) our belief that the differentiating attributes of Syndros™  will provide an important new treatment option for prescribers and patient and that Syndros™ has distinct advantages over the current formulation of dronabinol in soft gel capsule, and (v) our belief that our non-GAAP measures can be a meaningful indicator to both our management and investors. These forward-looking statements are based on management's expectations and assumptions as of the date of this press release; actual results may differ materially from those in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include, but are not limited to risk factors described in our filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including those factors discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and subsequent updates that may occur in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release and we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise these statements, except as may be required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company is also reporting Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Since Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share are not GAAP financial measures, they should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss) and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies. For a full reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income to GAAP net income, please see the attachments to this earnings release.

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:

Net income, plus:

  • Interest income (expense), net;

  • The recorded provision for income taxes;

  • Depreciation and amortization; and

  • Non-cash expenses, such as stock compensation expense and accrual for expected litigation judgment and government settlements.

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA can be a meaningful indicator, to both Company management and investors, of the past and expected ongoing operating performance of the Company. EBITDA is a commonly used and widely accepted measure of financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is deemed by the Company to be a useful performance indicator because it includes an add-back of non-cash and non-recurring operating expenses that may be subject to uncontrollable factors not reflective of the Company's true operational performance.

Adjusted net income, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:

Net income, plus:

  • The recorded provision for income taxes;

  • Non-cash expenses, such as stock compensation expense, non-cash interest, and non-cash other expense (i.e., accrual for expected litigation judgment and government settlements); and

  • Less an estimated cash tax provision, net of the benefit from utilizing NOL carry-forwards and windfalls from employee stock option exercises.

Adjusted net income per diluted share is equal to Adjusted net income divided by the diluted share count for the applicable period.

The Company believes that Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted shares are meaningful financial indicators, to both Company management and investors, in that they exclude non-cash income and expense items, as well as other income and expense items that are not expected to recur and therefore are not reflective of continuing operating performance.

While the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share in managing and analyzing its business and financial condition and believes these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance, each of these financial measures has certain shortcomings. Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account the impact of capital expenditures on either the liquidity or the GAAP financial performance of the Company and likewise omits share-based compensation expenses, which may vary over time and may represent a material portion of overall compensation expense. Adjusted net income does not take into account non-cash expenses that reflect the amortization of past expenditures, or include stock-based compensation, which is an important and material element of the Company's compensation package for its directors, officers and other key employees. As a result of the inherent limitations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures, the Company's management utilizes comparable GAAP financial measures to evaluate the business in conjunction with Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share and encourages investors to do likewise.
